will get us through a reasonable amount of time. matt walked through some of the economics of phase 1. phase ii, we have not yet submitted a formal proposal that has not been requested at this time, but obviously it's a major project through the entire pier. development costs would be in excess of $100 million. we would be requesting the full 66-year lease that is within the trust a because that would be required to amortize a very substantial investment, particularly with a full seismic upgrade and pier structure work that would be required. and we would finance this through a combination of private equity, debt, and federal and state historic tax credits. tmg has a lot of experience and we believe we can secure those credits and help make this project work. the project would generate a good deal of revenue over its life as well as a good deal of expenses up front,v and we expect that we would be able to pay a very substantial amount of rent to the port and would be willing to structure various forms of up side participation as is typical for these major projects, however, there woul
